We ride for coffee

We don't believe we are saying anything new to any cyclist with this BUT if you are new to cycling or you are a veteran but you have not known these cafes and would like to explore some new ones, we will list our favourites in both the UK and abroad. These are just our favourites so we realise there are tons of others we don't know so we would love to hear your favourites too. Comment & share!!

Right...so coffee equals cycling, cycling equals coffee. They are one and inseparable. Well, not for tea drinkers but is there any coffee drinking cyclist who doesn't love stopping for one? This love for coffee, however, did not start until we were involved in cycling. We started enjoying those amazing flat whites on the weekends then we went to work and there was only instant coffee??!! Oh dear; not only the world has changed but our perception on what good coffee is and instant was really not good enough anymore. Riding became a mission to find cafes with amazing coffee (and cake...let's not forget about the cakes. Another blog post?!).

Becase we love Richmond Park (South-West London) which is quite iconic in London, not only for wildlife but for cycling. This is where many cyclists do their laps and meet before they depart for their rides. We list a few around this park as well as many within the UK then head abroad.

1. Sheen, London, UK

2. Kingston, UK

3. Esher, UK

4. Windsor, UK

  • Cinnamon Cafe is a MUST stop for all cyclists. This cafe has been a favourite, the manager Nick, is a cyclist too. You get your cinnamon bun and mocha/flat white or latte fix with 10% discount to those in lycra. The whole cafe is super cycling friendly, what's not to like?: https://www.cinnamoncafe.com/

5. We do love tea rooms and farm shops with cafes so here are a few of our favourites:

We are now going abroad...

6. Girona, Spain

      

7. Castell-Platja d'Aro, Girona, Spain

8. Caimari, Mallorca, Spain

  • Sa Ruta Verda ( a must stop before or after of one of the most epic climbs, the Coll de Sa Batalla. Cycling cafe with great food & coffee): https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g754535-d8732925-r567030936-Sa_Ruta_Verda-Caimari_Majorca_Balearic_Islands.html

9. Puerto de Pollensa, Mallorca, Spain

Here it is..now take it Easy, get on your bike & don't forget to stop for an amazing flat white/espresso/lattee or capuccino!! Even if you don't like or drink coffee, these places have great cakes so nothing to lose ;-D

Sizing charts

These guides relate to body measurements and not garment measurements. Take your chest, waist and hip measurements. The size bracket you fall into is likely to give you the best fit.

That said, we all know that fit is a very personal thing, so a few things to bear in mind…

 We give you realistic sizing by us wearing the kit with our measurements so you can ensure you get the right size. If you are still unsure, please do get in touch. We are very happy to help and it avoids unnecessary returns.
